    Avian Vets in South Florida?

    Hi everyone! As the title suggests, I’m looking for a good avian vet in South Florida. I was taking my birds to Backos Bird Clinic, but as I called today to schedule a grooming, unfortunately I was told the doctor has passed away, and they’re permanently closed. I’ve searched the Association of...

    Is this the right F10?

    I recently received a new stainless steel cage for my CAG. It’s a bit dirty, so I wanted to give it a real deep clean. I saw that f10 was safe for birds, but when watching videos or searching forums, I only see the F10 listed for Avain usage specifically. I was wondering if this one is the same...

    Is this cage ok?

    My 7 year old African Grey desperately needed a new cage. I saw Gizmo the grey with this cage and the websites I saw said it was OK for Greys, so I assumed it was good enough for him. Fast forward to now, after purchasing, I’m convincing myself that it’s not appropriate. Here is the cage in...

    Is PLA bird safe?

    Ive been in the habit of making toys since toys don’t last 4 days in Romeo’s cage. He loves cups/bowls with lids so he can forage for the goodies inside. I saw these on Amazon:https://a.co/d/chNQ7fU And I saw that the inside is coated with PLA. I just wanted to know if this would be generally...

    Video odd bird behavior?

    Hi! So my bird does this every so often and it’s usually followed by regurgitation and stops when I pet his head. I was just wondering if anybody else’s bird does this.

    Smelly Poops, lots of tests, no answers

    I'm curious to know if anyone else has had smelly poops that vets have had a hard time diagnosing and what they did to get back to normal. My African Grey (CAG) has been with us for about 6 years now and he is about 12. In June we had a full physical and wellness exam that he came out with...

    Outstretched wings?

    My 6 year old CAG was let onto the couch to spend time with us out of his cage. He began chirping and outstretching his wings when we all sat down. Is this mating behavior? I’m not worried, because he looks extremely lively and happy.

    Getting a new parrot concern

    Hi, I am going to get a new baby African grey and am worried about the bird not being friendly or like me. I am going to drive around 10 hours to get him and am afraid the parrot may not like me, not be tame, and bite. Please let me know if you have any experience with this or if you know...
